Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jobyna Ralston, perennial leading lady in the Harold Lloyd pictures, is afforded star billing in Pretty Clothes. When Marian Dunbar (Ralston) falls in love with wealthy young Russell Thorpe (Johnny Walker), Thorpe's father (Charles Clary) decides to break up the romance. The elder Thorpe arranges for Philip Bennett (Lloyd Whitlock) to present Marian with a gorgeous gown. The girl innocently accepts the gift, whereupon Thorpe Sr. triumphantly informs Russell that Marian is a gold-digger who "paid the price" for the gown. Only in the final few minutes does Russell realizes that he's been duped, whereupon hero and heroine are reunited.
